Basically I think that is  agood idea. When it comes to circulation coins, the French 20 francs piece http://worldcoingallery.com/countries/img7/69-1008.jpg came pretty close to it (three different "color areas" but not really trimetallic). For a tri-met coin the mints would just have to use a third composition/color for the central part. I would not change the 1 piece for that, but maybe a 5 circulation coin could have such a look ...

Not bad, but it would be way too expensive to make them. I also like weird combinations, for example if central plug is Aluminium  (remember just that fascinating Algerian 10 dinars)
I think 20 francs were only for show-off, at the time I was in French countryside for 3 weeks and haven't seen a single one no matter how I tried. 20 Franc banknotes were common though. BTW, wasn't 20 francs really trimetallic, with core or the ring being Al-Ae and other simply brass Cu-Zn? Lazy to dig up now.

I had several in my change in the early 90's when on holiday - usually from filling stations for some reason.
They are very like the 25 Kuna issues.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Exactly! Those 25 kuna could be seen in late 90s (well, 6 issues to 2000. totalled 1,2M pieces) but later were probably taken away by collectors and "normal" people who found them interesting.
